Four Horsemen: Waking War

The Story So Far

Seven Days to Summer Solstice

  • Zahir approaches Vince Scytale in a park after one of Vince’s mentalist shows. Invites him to supper at Cajun Burger at 6. Vince Happily agrees
  • Zafir Salah approaches “Rook” aka Nicole Bennett on the University of Georgia Savannah campus. Invites to supper at Cajun Burger at 6.
    Rook is tentative, she is small and Zahir is big, but she goes
    Rook had seen Zahir looking back and forth from some gold, ankh necklace to her. After a smile plays across his lips, he walks over to her.
    Rook scouts Cajun Burger before entering, searching for back exits, traps, and sniper nests. She finds nothing of interest.
  • Zahir is sitting with a fierce, red headed woman whom he introduces as Kinnat Alastriona, Kit. She is silent but looks as if she will bite you.
    Zahir likes butter biscuits. They are apparently the only reason to go to Cajun Burger.
    Zahir demonstrates his Nephilim by turning some food to dust and ash.
    Zahir explains that they were chosen to be part of “The Legion of Seven and Three”. An ancient organization devoted to hunting out evil and was preliminary to the White Council.
    Says he needs them to combat the breaking of the Seal of War.
    Rook declines, as she has other obligations, but says she will help.
    Vince readily agrees as he hasn’t had too much of a purpose
    Vince gives Vince a “Dove”. It is a dove shaped stone for communication
  • Rook goes home and squeals to Monoc Securities that she was approached
    They say they have only ever heard the name, but it pops up only every few hundred years, but it fits the description

  • Aaron’s group sends Bune, the monstrosity; Eligos, the pegasus knight; and Aaron to fight while Vince and Crocell spectate/hide.
